I had a method called
orderByDistance but it needed a comment to clarify
whether the first elements in the output were the nearest or furthest. A better
name for the method - one that wouldn't need a comment - would be
orderByProximity since the word "proximity" suggests order, i.e.
When naming functions whose return value has some order, use adjectives that communicate that meaning rather than bland nouns that remove it.
